Robots on the Battlefield
Robotics to play major role in future warfighting

From the article:According to this article, "The Army has 482,000 active-duty soldiers. With Guard and Reserve forces, there are 1.2 million soldiers in the total Army." It will be great to take take all 1.2 million of them off the battlefield and out of harm's way. But by 2025 they will also all be unemployed.

With robots on the battlefield, there is not really any limit to the size of the army or the army's destructive force. One year you buy half a million robots, the next year you buy another half million, and so on. Nations with robotic armies will have a startling amount of power.
